  • Had a wonderful time at Blue Bohemian. The owner is very honest, kind and welcoming. He helped me look through all the different fabrics and clothes that were all at a very good price. I was intending...  more »
  • Beautiful gems in this lovely shop! I popped in with a few of my friends, and we had a lot of fun looking through the clothes! Found this exquisite blue jumpsuit for very reasonable price!  more »
  • We met Vicky as a very honest man. On the first day, we sat with him in his little shop, drinking Chai and I sought out beautiful silk pants. Vicky gave us helpful tips to negotiate and generally dealing with sellers in India. At the end of the conversation he us clear then, that the silk pants advertised by him were not real, and then gave a generous discount. As they me so or so gefiehlen, not bad I took him and bought it. At this moment, we were convinced of Vicky's honesty. The next day we were looking for to back him and he enlightened us about differences between pashmina, viscose and plastic. We bought us two Pashminaschals, the both the "water"-as passed also the "fire test" that he showed us. We demanded even a receipt, so how it taught Vicky us, where he just writes that there are Pashminaschals. (see photo) In the evening, we read even more on the Internet about pashminas. Several sources said that a genuine pashmina under 10 is to get ' 000 rupees. We were slightly confused, because we much less paid. So we went to another city in a Pashminashop, a local recommended us. We eröffnetem the seller, we simply learn more about pashminas. He could tell us much about the production and the determination of the authenticity of the scarves. Water and fire test evidence according to this seller, only that it was wool, but not necessarily to pashmina. The cheapest scarf in this shop kostere 10'000 rupees. We showed the seller the scarves purchased from Vicky, the seller identified without hesitation as machine-made Wolleschals (no pashminas!)! We were both clearly feel the difference to the real, as well as see. The embroideries were clearly at the genuine pashmina with the eyes, because these are just hand-embroidered. Also the fabric feels warmer, softer and lighter. After all, the seller said that we would have paid at least not too much Vicky for this Wolleschals. This was only a small consolation. We talked for hours with him about India, about traveling familiar Vicky, and it is as tedious in India again and again over the ear to be carved. Unfortunately he has abused our trust what is much more annoying, because we had a good feeling with him. Long story, short of it: a trusted dealer Vicky seems to be, but this is nothing more than his way of ripping off tourists. He sold no real pashminas, but only Wolleschals.

  • What a gem to find! Vicky is such a dear - he’ll give his honest opinion, he’ll bargain with you, and he won’t rush you at all. He helps you find the things you are interested in and doesn’t push you to purchase more than you want. Gorgeous scarves, bags - and his family does their own indigo dying and patterning! A must in Jodhpur!
  • The Blue Bohemian offers only the best high quality products and honest prices to go along with them that can fit any budget. The range of products that Vicki carries in his shop might just make your heart skip a beat the first time you walk in. They have just about everything you could ever want! And if by chance they don't have what you are searching for they will go get it for you and have it brought to the shop while you continue to browse, drink chai and dowse yourself in great conversation. The owner of the Blue Bohemian, Vicki is a friendly, genuine guy, who is very knowledgable and passionate about his shop and the people who walk into it. Whether you end up buying from the Blue Bohemian or from somewhere else, he spends the time to educate his customers on how to recognize high quality and authentic products vs poor quality look-alikes. Ask him how to identify a fake pashmina scarf and he will give you the interactive demonstration of a life time that you will not soon forget, and that when you return home you can impress your friends with you newfound knowledge. No pushy sales tactic are used, it is just all smiles and good company! By the time you leave you feel like you have made a new friend and maybe even an extended family. I spent good portion of my time at Vicki's shop during my trip to India, and I can't wait to back!
  • This shop is in clock tower and beside a mb spices shop. I went there after reading many positive reviews. The shop owner is really a helpful person and he helped us to choose the right fabrics. We bought block printed kurti from this shop. Price is reasonable.
  • Great place to shop for the standard souvenirs or even tailor made things. Vikram is super helpful and got my backpack zipper repaired even though I hadnt bought anything or showed interest. Hes very honest and explained everything about his business to me and how other shops might scam you. I wound up negotiating a fair price for a few scarves and elephant pants with him and drinking a chai. Genuinely friendly guy that will help you and sell to patiently without being forceful in the slightest even though he does also employ touts (like absolutely every shop)
